Do The Kind Thing


DO THE KIND THING
“Distance doesn’t separate people, silence does.” unknown
We’re all busy, but our lives would be better if we didn’t allow that to be an excuse. In our gut, we know what we should do to let a person know that we’re thinking about them. The gesture, message, phone call, visit doesn’t take as long as we project, so we should act.

Let Your Life Speak


“Our goal in life is rather simple: coherency. A coherent life is one lived in such a way that you can clearly connect the dots between these three things:
Who you are
What you believe
What you are doing”
Designing Your Life, Burnett and Evans
Actually, to be this authentic is a tall order, but one that is worthy of our efforts.

Expectations


“If you can’t live up to your expectations, lower them.” unknown older
This quote may sound odd, but our expectations often stop us from enjoying our lives. Career opportunities are cast aside that could lead to new fascinating experiences. Excursions aren’t taken because they are less than desired and people are over-looked who could be treasures to know.
Expectations can hold us back. Instead, take it as it comes – with eyes wide open.

To Slouch or Not To Slouch

IMG_0668“A slouching posture tends to suggest a certain laziness of character, as well as a lack of interest in others. Whereas an upright posture can confirm a sense of self possession, a quality of engagement-both of which are befitting of confidence.”Amor Towles
Could this be true – or not?

Having Grace


Grace is all around us for the taking, but we often let it drift away-unused.
Grace can alleviate problematic scenarios and literally freshen the air.
Caroline Myss said, “When you get mad and want to say _ and something inside you says, ‘Do you really want to go there?’ that’s grace.”

I Don’t Know What To Do

It’s something we learn – what to do when someone dies. The answer is, do something tangible. Bring tasty food, a special photo, write a heartfelt note of memories or show up to actually help in whatever way is needed. These kindnesses are always remembered and they honor the one who is gone.
“Yes, the world is changed, dear heart, but do not be afraid. You are loved, you are loved. You will not disappear. I will remember.”Kate Bowler

Going Somewhere?

Ah, the joy of capricious meandering. Show the world that there’s more to life than a rigid schedule, a job description, and a paycheck.
